Bioengineering at CMC
Bioengineering Involves basic science and applied research in medical instrumentation, prostheses, mathematical analysis of physiological processes, biomechanics of musculoskeletal
systems, rehabilitation engineering etc. Bioengineering has engineering at its core, and includes the disciplines of physics, mechanics, electronics, and computational methods applied to
physiology and medicine.
The Bioengineering department at CMC-Vellore works closely with several other departments in CMC and significant work has been in Physiological Measurements, Prostheses and Assistive Devices, Electrodiagnostics, Neuorehabilitation technology etc. The department has electronics and mechanical fabrication and testing labs as well as embedded and GUI software development facilities. Devices developed in the department are in use in clinical departments and research labs in CMC and other institutions. The Bioengineering department at
CMC is a participant in a three institution M.Tech. (Clinical Engineering) and Ph.D. (Medical Devices) initiative, jointly run by IIT-Madras, SCTIMST-Trivandrum and CMC-Vellore. The
admissions for those programmes are advertised separately.
